Last week during my Strategies for Success class, there was an exercise that required our class to visualize what our lives would be like in five years. I must admit that this was a very interesting exercise to me. My vision of my future was very vivid. I saw the house, car, family and career that I’ve always wanted. It was pretty interesting to say the least.
After class, I couldn’t help but to wonder if five years ago I would have visualized being where I am today. Would I see myself trading in my wardrobe for a t-shirt, white jacket, checkerboard pants and little cap? Would I see myself replacing a necklace with a neckerchief? Could I ever imagine trading my collection of shoes in for a comfy pair of black Crocs (without the holes)? And finally, would I see the passion upon my face as I am kneading dough? I don’t think that I would. However, I feel that attending The Chef’s Academy is a decision that I will never regret. I have learned so much over the past seven weeks and I look forward to learning more!! I may not truly know where my life’s path will lead me within the next five, ten or twenty years, but I’ll continue to walk one step at a time.
Fermenting my future,
